Couperin: Pavel Kolesnikov (detail) View full image

Pavel Kolesnikov - Louis Couperin

Very few pianists of Kolesnikov's generation share his abundance of intelligence, sensitivity, musicality, imagination, and sheer instrumental mastery.

Patrick Rucker, Gramophone, April 2018

We are delighted to announce the release of Pavel Kolesnikov's third CD on the Hyperion label: Louis Couperin - Dances from the Bauyn Manuscript.  This release follows Pavel's extraordinary recording of Chopin Mazurkas, which won a Diapson Award.

Equally well-suited to the demands of the French Baroque as to the high Romanticism of Tchaikovsky and Chopin, Pavel Kolesnikov’s attentive musicianship yields predictably revelatory results in the music of Louis Couperin. Hyperion

The CD is available on Amazon from 30 March or by pre-order.
